HealthCasts – Mona Misra, MD – Why People Fail to Consider Weight Loss Surgery


The Marina Del Rey
Hospital HealthCast, featuring the doctors of
Marina Del Rey Hospital. Doctor, we’re in an era
where people are fat. We have staggering numbers of people
across the world who are obese. And a lot of people don’t seek attention,
a lot of people don’t seek out help. And there is help available. What are some of the
reasons that you found that people do not come to see you guys
at The Marina Weight Loss Center, maybe some of the reasons why
they’re scared to come to see you, and to take that first step. That’s a very good question. I honestly believe that they just
don’t have the information or the right information to be able
to make an appropriate decision. And that’s really why we
want to meet with patients and just let them know
what is out there. I mean the amount of
improvements that’s going on and significant changes
that have gone on with bariatric surgery
or weight loss surgery. It is such a safe operation and
it’s such an effective operation. And it’s adding years
to peoples’ lives. And I think, if they just realized that it isn’t as scary as they
think that it’s going to be. And we’re not going to be
making their lives so difficult, we’re actually gonna be
making them easier, and that they can actually do this. And with our help, and that’s
what we wannat do, we wanna prepare them
to be able to do this, that this is not an insurmountable
challenge that they need to perform, You know, we’re going to be able to
get them where they’re trying to go. And all they need is the information. I think it’s really just knowledge. The Marina Del Rey
